Saint Mary's University
Saint Mary's traces its earliest beginnings to 1802 when the Reverend Edmund Burke, later Bishop Burke, taught young men at the Glebe House, on the corner of Spring Garden Road and Barrington Street. The boys’ school grew first into a college and then into a university, never wavering in its commitment to education and community service.
For over 200 years, Saint Mary’s University has been a hub for helping students find success in whatever interests them most. That’s because SMU, big thinkers and small class sizes combine to give you opportunities like nowhere else. The university offers numerous undergraduate, graduate, certificate & diplomas courses in various fields of study.
Athletics & Recreation is committed to helping people realize their full potential in their intellectual, social and physical dimensions.
